Thanks for your lovely comment Nick!
As I said in the lesson, I invested so much of my self in "doing" success that I missed an opportunity to "BE" with my wife and son. Though I helped thousands of others, I gave much of the love to them that belonged at home where my family had "needs". My dream is to share the mistakes I've made in my life so that others who are interested in growing may choose to avoid making such mistakes. We have a grand opportunity to help people find wholeness in their life when coaching them, but we must do it first, or we are pseudo-coaches. When we live our values, coaching is a process of sharing. Then, all the technical data-dancing isn't needed to cover up one's own insecurities. I've certainly got a head full of facts and figures, as most that have worked with me or know me could verify, but that is certainly NOT what makes for good coaching. If facts and figures don't turn out as tangible improvements in living healthy values, they become a distraction. One can easily worship their "memory of stuff", but not realize that such academic distractions can take one away from the essentials that ultimately determine true success, which isn't true success unless it comes with happiness.
Thanks for sharing your appreciation!
Love and chi,
Paul Chek

This is the stuff people need to be hearing about first and foremost...knowing who we ARE. "Vipassana".We are co-creators of our reality. Keep doing what you're doing Paul...this one reminds me of a good book on the topic of leadership, goal setting, etc..."good to great" by Jim Collins. Keep feeding the masses...
